Kids craft homemade Christmas gifts

Jonesboro, AR (KAIT)- Some Region 8 Kids decided to make their Christmas gifts to their loved ones a little personal this year. A handmade Christmas craft event was held Saturday at Crowley's Ridge Nature Center.

Children ages 4-12 were able to make homemade presents for the family. Education Specialist, Lee Elkins says she is happy to help kids come in and make a special gift for someone in their lives "its just wonderful and especially during these times when things are so hard for so many people. These kids can come out and do it for free...its for free."

While this was the first year for this particular craft event, Elkins says they plan on doing some version like it every Christmas.
